Once you park, enter the building and make your way to the second floor via stairs or elevator. Turn left at the top of the stairs and you will find Suite L at the end of the hall on the left. Come in and relax - help yourself to coffee, tea and chocolates. We will come out to get you.
The number one predictor that you will have a positive outcome in therapy (regardless of theory) is the feeling of connection and trust you have with your therapist. Whether with us or with another therapist, we encourage you to listen to your gut and check-in with your experience after the first session or two. We will be checking in with you in the initial few sessions to ensure that our connection will facilitate a positive outcome for you. What matters most to us is that you are in the best environment to reach your goals.
Restoration Therapy combines the advantages of Attachment Theory, Emotional Regulation and Mindfulness in an efficient and organized fashion that allows therapist and client to uncover old destructive patterns of behavior and promote change. One of the main advantages of Restoration Therapy is that the approach provides the client with a clear understanding of the ways early violations of love and trustworthiness developed into problems of identity and safety. As the therapist makes these identity and safety patterns known, clients can be helped by making more thoughtful and informed choices about personal beliefs about self and relationships resulting in long lasting behavior change.
